What began as a 30-page notebook of “don’t forget me when I’m dead” jottings, morphed into the most comprehensive humorous guide to life ever to grace your night stand, coffee table, beach bag or carry-on luggage. Deeply personal yet universal in scope, Sure Dad, You Know Everything is a wild ride through the challenges and questions of daily living that everyone faces. Running the gamut of parent-child emotions, this Everydad is at times lighthearted, thought provoking, poignant, practical, irreverent, down-to-earth, in-your-face, tongue-in-cheek, prodding, irritating, postulating—yet surprisingly does not inspire eye rolling.
Journey with Sure Dad through an encyclopedia of cross-referenced topics that may or may not actually be related but will consistently entertain. His no-nonsense approach is so full of nonsense that you will be chuckling and nodding your head in agreement. And forget about living an unexamined life; this dad examines everything.
You’ll find yourself laughing out loud as you sift through paternal observations about relationships, everyday activities, entertainment, body parts, behaviors, animals, vegetables, minerals (wait, did he forget to mention minerals?) and more. Leaving nothing to chance, Sure Dad includes a variety of lists that take “and don’t forget…” to the nth degree—including a book-within-a-book of expressions that confound dads and everyone else.
Illustrated with equal wit and whimsy by Hillary Miles, this ambitious collection of commentaries includes the sort of things your dad wished he had said, but was just too tired to mention, as well as the stuff your goofy uncle, annoying brother or earnest cousin may have thrown in for good measure. And for those whose dads are absent on one or more levels, Sure Dad will provide the guidance wrapped in good humor that you didn’t even realize you were missing.
